Eligibility:

Graduates

The figure says that globally it is projected that two-third of mankind will live in the urban areas by 2025. India is 2nd largest urban system in the world with more than 30 percent of urban population. It is expected that by 2025, half of the India’s population will be urbane.

Excessive urbanization has caused multiple problems such as transportation, poverty, unemployment, illegal housing complexes, slums and shantytowns. One estimate suggests that at least 33% of India’s urban population lives in slums, which has implications for development. Urbanization will therefore be an issue facing urban planners and policymakers in the coming years. Therefore, proper planning and management of urban development projects is crucial for planners and policy makers. The importance of urban issues has not yet been properly understood as urban development issues receive less attention in academic courses at postgraduate and graduate levels. MAUS is therefore useful both for those involved in urban development projects and for graduates who want to pursue a career in urban development.

The M.Sc. programme in the area of Counselling and Family Therapy is aimed at developing professionals in this vital field, which is gaining greater salience in the present times both from social and employment perspectives. The contemporary social scenario has resulted in an increased need and demand for professional support in terms of counselling and family therapy, which is being increasingly recognized as an effective approach both for promoting positives like strengthening family ties, fostering positive parenting, and increasing resilience of individuals in vulnerable situations as well as for addressing negative aspects such as socio-psychological problems, maladaptive behaviours, declining mental health, and psychosomatic disorders that are being increasingly witnessed in the present times.  However, though the need for counselling and family therapy professionals is being increasingly felt, there is a dearth of professional support and experts who could lend a helping hand in promoting positive family processes and help individual family members in distress in a comprehensive way. As a result, there is a tremendous felt need for education and training in this area. By developing the requisite knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills in the area of Counselling and Family Therapy, this unique programme of study would help to train professional cadres in the field, equipping them for both wage-employment and self- employment, and thus fill the existing lacuna.

A remarkable feature of this programme of study is its focus on the applied aspect and the thrust on opportunities for hands-on experience for the learner. In fact, almost half the credits of this Master’s Degree Programme are ear-marked for application-oriented learning opportunities. In the second year of the programme, the learner has the option to be trained in Marital and Family Therapy and Counselling, Child and Adolescent Counselling and Family Therapy, or Substance Abuse Counselling and Family Therapy. Yet another special feature of the programme is that it has a provision of exit point for learners (after successful completion of the first year courses) in the form of P.G. Diploma in Counselling and Family Therapy (PGDCFT).

The programme has theory, supervised practicum, internship, and dissertation as components. The courses that comprise the Master’s programme, along with the credit weightage, are as follows:

Number of Courses:                            19
Total Number of Credits:                      64

Theory:                                                30 Credits
